As an integrator of building automation, we engineer 1,000 control cabinet units annually with a colossal number of BACnet data points. In doing so, we strictly follow the guidelines set out by trade and hardware-based sectoral planning concepts. Price pressure, falling margins and rising project risks were the driving factors behind further developing our business model. The key question for us is: How can we achieve our goal of sustainable economic activity with a forward-looking business model? We utilize the advantages provided by the fourth industrial revolution. Cutting-edge technology: Instead of increasing the horsepower to achieve better acceleration, we rely on an electric car with zero emissions, and go from 0 to 100 in less than three seconds.
Thanks to this experience, we have developed into a smart commercial building provider. Today, we offer our customers real added value: Connection of the infrastructure to our IoT data platform ElioT. This enables an innovative user experience and the enhanced performance of buildings, plants and portfolios. Projects are completed successfully in next to no time thanks to use cases and proof of concepts. We transform the business model of our customers for the digitized future.
We boast over 23 years of experience in process planning and optimizing operational logic in buildings and infrastructure facilities. We have gone from being a building automation integrator to a smart commercial building provider. To be able to create the building of the future for our customers, over 100 engineers and specialists develop scalable solutions tailored to user needs for high-performance smart buildings. We combine traditional building management systems with state-of-the-art IoT and Big Data technology as well as with local services such as planning, project management and support.
Each and every company has a data treasure trove. However, very few companies are aware of this fact. Big Data technology allows you to collect and analyze building and usage data, while valuable findings provide insight into weak points and hidden optimization potential for building operation. ITEC offers consulting services, such as data science and/or data analysis, which highlight unexploited potential. A motion detector that triggers a light when someone is present provides data that can be used to analyze and compare when and how often people use the rooms.
Today, users expect to see complex issues presented in an understandable manner as a simple solution in user-friendly apps. Building operators need to create an innovative new user experience. For instance, users must be able to intuitively activate and control heating via a building management system without the need for operating instructions or profiles. ElioT enables such operating concepts for smart buildings. The open platform is based on the same simple user guidance and technology used by Google and Facebook, for example. A similar development is taking place in the automotive industry. What is the point of a motor vehicle without a multimedia interface nowadays?
LEICOM’s method of system integration allows additional building automation modules and IoT components to be added at any time. The data obtained from digitizing the building can be exchanged between basic configuration (I&C, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, cables, etc.) and user expansion (IoT sensors, gateways, software) in both directions by means of message broking.
The previous rigid connection between basic configuration and user expansion through building automation is eliminated by the free user expansion (no system boundaries, user-defined scalability) and enables the flexible design of buildings and infrastructures for the widest range of usage requirements.
For years now, many companies have been introducing increasingly comprehensive building automation solutions. Instead of introducing a new solution, the old system was simply extended. Such inherited burdens can, however, slow down innovation. Time and energy are lost, as old technology leads to high maintenance costs and massive repair bills if and when things go wrong. In the digital transformation process, anyone who wants to operate an agile, efficient and competitive business model in the field of real estate, plant and infrastructure management definitely needs a data management platform such as ElioT. ElioT offers the technological foundations to map the infrastructure as a digital twin. The goal of “digital infrastructures” is therefore achieved. As the traffic hub for all building data, ElioT enables a significant increase in plant, building and infrastructure performance. Commercial operation can be optimized and used as the basis for new business models. Across all sectors – for buildings, sites and cities.
